    This is intriguing - I tried it on speakers and sounded quite normal, so I tried on my IEMs and something odd happened. The footsteps went BEHIND me, not in front. Anyone else hear this? Really...

    I struck lucky with an example quite quickly.

    Here are two files. The stereo one is recorded with a zoom, with the fixed X/Y mics, with the foam windshield covered in a fur fabric extra...

    Clearly, what you and I think acceptable are different. It's not a problem for you, so that's fine. I don't record stereo outside now, or for the past ten years maybe? I don't like the result, so I...

    Everyone is forgetting the plain and simple facts here. Stereo imaging and an accurate stereo field rely on two physical properties, time arrival and pressure. Outside there is a big problem - the...

    The blade runner scene is just very cleverly put together - the blending of lots of different elements. Absolutely real haze, but I'm also guessing there are colours here. The background is lit with...

    I remember a brief fad with this in maybe 1994/5? I had been involved in a themed attraction where people walked through a graveyard, swamp and other scary settings where there were real performers...

    I try to imagine what they will do with my limited audience videos. Sometimes, I know they will date dreadfully, so I'm happy to grant licences in perpetuity - sounds good to them to have it for...

    I often smile at these kinds of things when we sort of reinvent things, claim them as new and amazing and then create a market for a product that is often sort of a mistake.

    I’m old now so looking...

    For me - the best bit about ENG cameras was the trend to keep the controls in the same place and work the same way. You could put down your Sony, pick up a P2 and most things were exactly where you...

    I think I know the clips you mean and those would be very soft, I’m cool with this. I liked those channels in UHD and above, but I would never get a return on the equipment costs, so I’ve no interest...

    Welcome to the real world. Do you really think 1080 isn't good enough any longer. I saw some stats the other day that over 80% of people who have HD TVs and have HD channels available are still...

    I've used a 500, and if one came up for the right money - I'd buy one still. For me the thing really is the lack of recording formats - so it will do 1080i/60, or other versions at the usual...
